Summary: “Die Neuzeit” (modern times) was a liberal Austrian Jewish weekly in German language "for political, religious and cultural interests" (“Wochenschrift fuer politische, religioese und Kultur-Interessen”), published in Vienna from 1861 to 1903 (43 volumes). Modeled after the “Allgemeine Zeitung des Judenthums” (1837–1922) in Germany, “Die Neuzeit” marked the actual beginning of the Jewish press in Austria in the second half of the 19th century and became the main organ for Jewish emancipation until 1867. “Die Neuzeit” was founded by the Bohemian writer Leopold Kompert (1822–1886) and the Hungarian rabbi and educator Simon Szántó (1819–1882). While “Die Neuzeit” was edited by Szántó till his death, Kompert withdrew after the first volume, still contributing articles from time to time. In 1882, the paper was carried on by the Vienna preacher and scholar Adolf Jellinek (1821–1893), and in 1893, by his colleague D. Loewy (died 1902).
